  • Ginn Jr., Dolphins agree to deal

    Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., Miami's first-round pick and the ninth pick overall, has agreed to terms with the Dolphins.

    Financial terms were not immediately available.

    Ginn, a receiver and kick returner, reached the agreement after missing five practices for rookies. The deal means the Dolphins will have all 87 players on their roster under contract when the full squad begins training camp Saturday.

    Ginn scored 26 touchdowns at Ohio State, including a Big Ten-record six returning punts. He made 59 catches for 781 yards and nine scores as a junior last year, and he was the second receiver drafted, behind Calvin Johnson, who went to the Detroit Lions with the No. 2 pick.

    But fans jeered new Dolphins coach Cam Cameron at the team's draft party in April for bypassing Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn in the first round and picking Ginn instead with the ninth choice.

    Ginn was among the fastest players in the draft, but has been criticized for running poor routes, dropping too many passes and struggling to get off the line, and there have also been doubts about his health. He sprained his left foot during an end zone celebration after returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown at the BCS national championship game Jan. 8.

    YTF was he holding out?!? He was damn lucky to be drafted so high.

    • He wasn't really holding out, he's about halfway through the draft class (1st round) in terms of being signed. After camp starts is when I'd consider it holding out...

              If you read the article, he already missed 5 practices for rookies.

              • meh, it's not a holdout until camp properly begins. Rookie practice is for people who are dumb enough to agree to contracts

                I'll again note that he's not holding out any further than most players... only 2 players in the 1st round (and 0 in the 2nd round, from what i've read) were signed as of two weeks ago (7/10/07).
